Amici are the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American Medical Association, and 17 other leading national medical societies and associations committed to the provision of safe, quality reproductive healthcare, including abortion.
Amici argue that the Texas abortion ban is contrary to patient health, well-settled law, and core principles of medical ethics. The ban threatens the health and well-being of pregnant patients and disproportionately harms people and communities that are marginalized. The ban violates respect for patient autonomy and impermissibly intrudes into the patient-clinician relationship.
